Three Things On Rosie O'Donnell's Bucket List (VIDEO)

Actress and comedian Rosie O'Donnell has some fascinating items still left on her bucket list, and she’s setting out to achieve them after surviving a serious life-threatening health scare.

After suffering a serious heart attack, Rosie sat down in the cardiac care unit and made a bucket list of things she wanted to accomplish in her life. “My number one thing was to go to Australia and New Zealand,” she told us.

The next item: having another baby. “After my heart attack, I said, ‘let’s adopt,’ and this lovely baby arrived in January of last year,” Rosie said with a smile.

“I’d also love to direct a movie. I’m so bossy! I love brilliant performances. Something about it is just magical,” she said.
